Asphalt Pavement User Guide Webinar Series: Asphalt Pavement Mix Designs

Asphalt is commonly thought of as a structural material for roads, airfields, and parking lots, but its durability, smoothness, and flexibility make it suitable for other applications as well. In many areas around the world and across the U.S. asphalt pavements are successfully used for stormwater mitigation, sidewalks, bicycle paths, tennis courts, running tracks, pond liners, and railroad track beds. These specialty uses of asphalt mixtures are the subject of this chapter.

Notes From the Road

  • Skid Steer Safety

    Skid steers are a common piece of equipment found in a variety of industries. While they are small, the danger these machines can pose can be large. It is critical to take time to recognize the hazards present during the operation of skid steers so that the necessary best practices can be followed.

  • School Zone Safety

    The end of summer means millions of Texas children have or will soon return to school. Drivers (on the job or off the job) need to be extra cautious as school zones become more active.

  • Proper Hydration

    When it is as hot as it is our bodies lose lots of water when working in the outdoors. Water is important to the body as it keeps the body from overheating. The main way the body discards heat in warm weather is through sweat. As sweat evaporates, it cools the tissues beneath. Lots of sweating reduces the body's water level, and this loss of fluid affects normal bodily functions.

  • Proper Lifting

    In our daily lives, both at work and at home, we are always lifting or moving something. Quite often we think that we can lift or move something that is way too heavy or bulky and that is what puts us at a high risk of injury. Back strains and strained muscles are among the most common injuries affecting our work and social lives so it is important to refresh ourselves on how to properly lift objects.
